To offer users more ways to express themselves, Twitter has introduced mixed media. Now, users can post photos, videos, and GIFs together in a single Tweet to share more about an event, activity, or different sides of a story. The new mixed media feature is available on iOS and Android.
Sometimes you need more than one kind of media to express yourself the way you want. Don’t worry, we’ve got you.
How to add up to 4 mixed media in a single Tweet on Twitter
Users can quickly and easily add media of their liking in a Tweet by following the simple steps listed below:
- In the Tweet composer, tap on the media or/and GIF icons to add media.
- You can add up to four media of any combination. For example, 4 photos, videos, or GIFs, 2 photos and 2 videos, 2 GIFs and 2 videos, or any other combination of content.
- For videos, the app lets you trim them and add a warning if required for nudity, violence, and sensitive content. Content warnings will allow followers to avoid content they don’t want to view.
- Once the limit of mixed media is reached, the icons and media library are greyed out and become unfunctional.
Twitter’s creator Jack Chams said that new mixed media is going to be a new way for users to express themselves in creative ways, especially for creators. It gives people an opportunity to be seen more by sharing visual content, beyond 280 characters.
Really loving this new tool here on Twitter. It has opened up a whole new world of opportunity to share my work & the behind the scenes. Excited to see how creatives can capitalize on this feature and share more of their process moving forward. Stoked to see Twitter caring about creatives and how they can share their work through this medium.
